[travel] My day trip to Tokyo \(^∀^)メ(^∀^)ノ

As mentioned earlier, during my whirlwind day trip to Tokyo, I went to Asakusa & Sensoji Temple, took the Tokyo Cruise Ship to Hamarikyu gardens, and from there I took the subway to Zojoji Temple & Tokyo Tower, before heading to Shibuya and Harajuku. The Tokyo subway & railway systems are insane, so I had NO idea how I got from one place to another and chose to put all my trust in Mizza’s wonderful navigating experience xD Tokyo is such a huge city and has so much to see, and there is no way that my itinerary covered everything Tokyo has to offer.

Our day kicked off with some scorching hot Takoyaki near Sensoji Temple. For lunch, Mizza took me to a popular tempura chain called Tendon Tenya in the Asakusa neighborhood. No trip to Japan is completed without Sushi, thus we enjoyably dined at the insanely famous and outrageously popular Umegaoka Sushi No Midori 美登利総 in Mark City Shibuya. Something missing? Yes, you’re right. Where is the sweet, decadent, bad-for-your-health-good-for-your-tongue, dessert? With that it mind, we went to Sunday Jam located on the bustling Harajuku street for some sinful pancake bites. I love eating, I seriously do.
